What is forex and the forex market?

Forex (FX) is short for foreign exchange – changing one currency into another. This process can be performed for a variety of reasons including commercial, tourism and to enable international trade.

Forex is traded on the forex market, which is open to trade currencies 24 hours a day, five days a week and is used by banks, businesses, investment firms, hedge funds and retail traders.

Why forex trading?



Forex trading is accessible to any kind of trader, with trading from a few dollars to tens of thousands. The availability of online trading platforms means that anyone with an internet connection can participate in Forex trading, making it one of the most inclusive financial markets in the world.



The foreign exchange market has a daily trading volume of over $6 trillion, making it the most liquid in the world and an exciting place to trade. The wide range of currency pairs and leverage in CFD trading provides traders with an abundance of opportunities to potentially benefit from price fluctuations in both directions.



Unlike stock exchanges that operate during specific hours, the Forex market operates 24 hours a day, five days a week. This continuous availability allows traders to react to global economic events and news developments as they happen, taking advantage of potential volatility, without having to wait for markets to open.
